In an Apple Orchard (oil pastels)


Fabulous! Love the colours you have used!

Beautifully colourful Carole. Love the reds and oranges against the blues and greens. It says “sunshine”. You’re doing some great work with oil pastels.

Super work Carole.

Like this a lot Carole. Great work. Love the background colors too!

Fabulous colours, of course, Carole, and interesting move away from the literal, to produce a deeply satisfying image; lovely; much love and God bless 🙂🙏❤️

Beautiful, bright, and very appealing, Carole, I also found oil pastels work and blend easier on canvas board too.

Lovely Carole, such vibrant colours

Beautiful and vibrant Carole, love that zing of pink on the main apple. You’ve cracked the oil pastels I think Carole!

Photos and sketches from an apple orchard near my home. Oil pastels on canvas board in Spain. Have found this the best surface to use so far. The board had several layers of gesso then a blue, acrylic background. Bought some very cheap oil pastels in Spain, so didn’t have the luxury of my Sennelier pastels. Used Faber Castell pencils to tidy up. Found the OP’s reacted robustly to the surface. Moved paint around with a shaper and fingers. Not a very finished piece but enjoyed the process. 12” x 10”.
